Symposium by Plato( Book )

793 editions published between 1556 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 6,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Counter Plato, Allan Bloom wrote, is "the most erotic of philosophers," and his Symposium is one of the greatest works on the nature of love ever written. This new edition brings together the English translation of the renowned Plato scholar and translator, Seth Benardete, with two illuminating commentaries on it: Benardete's "On Plato's Symposium" and Allan Bloom's provocative essay, "The Ladder of Love." In the Symposium, Plato recounts a drinking party following an evening meal, where the guests include the poet Aristophanes, the drunken Alcibiades, and, of course, the wise Socrates. The revelers give their views on the timeless topics of love and desire, all the while addressing many of the major themes of Platonic philosophy: the relationship of philosophy and poetry, the good, and the beautiful." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/uchi051/00032593.html

Plato unmasked : Plato's Dialogues made new by Plato( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plato's dialogues in condensed translations that (1) preserve the flavor of the original Greek, and (2) enable the general reader or student to easily follow the thread of Plato's arguments, which are the source of our ideas on: romantic love, immortality of the soul, heaven and hell, divine judgment, social contract, political science, felicific calculus, penal reform, equality of women, child rearing (including prenatal care and the importance of rocking infants), universal education (divided into kindergarten, elementary school, and high school), eugenics, behavioral conditioning, professional military, urban planning, marriage counseling, regulation of environmental pollution, and state mandated care for the aged and insane ... to name only a few. This book will appeal to students, teachers, and readers studying Plato who want to easily follow his arguments but at the same time gain insight into the characters of the dialogues and their lives."--Jacket
Lysis or, Friendship. The symposium. Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

8 editions published between 1946 and 1979 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is logical to group together the three dialogues of the present volume -- the Lysis, the Symposium, and the Phaedrus. In the first place, these three works contain in essence virtually all that Plato had to say on the subject of love and friendship. Secondly, the Lysis and certain parts of the other two works will show the Platonic dialectic in action. Further, the Symposium and Phaedrus are so replete with meaning that repeated readings are necessary in order to approach anything like a full grasp of their contents. In particular, they indicate what Plato conceived the nature of the human soul to be. We find him arguing that it is an entity which is immortal and at the same time has deep involvements in the world of space and time. - Preface
